That’s how the trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s new movie Mother! begins. The director who brought us Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream is dipping his toe into full-blown horror territory with his latest feature, and he’s brought in lots of Oscar-level performers to star. Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris play a strange couple who come to stay at the house, and Variety reports that Kristen Wiig is somewhere in the mix too (though you don’t see her in the trailer).
The clip left Twitter shook. Who left that stain on the carpet? What is that couple up to on the bed? Why is Jennifer Lawrence always cast with significantly-older romantic partners?
But equally vocal are the people excited to see Michelle Pfeiffer back on the big screen:
Michelle Pfeiffer saying "You give and you give and you give, and it's just never enough" in the mother! trailer is my new favorite thing— Chris Evangelista (@cevangelista413) August 8, 2017
The scariest part of the "Mother!" trailer is wondering if Michelle Pfeiffer is going to disappear again for 10 years without any warning.— Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) August 8, 2017
No matter your reason for being at the edge of your seat, this seems like it could be the fall’s first good scary movie.
Mother! hits theaters September 15.
